    A somber slow burn romance with a touch of suspense, Defending Zara is a solid addition to the series This very much reads like a Susan Stoker romance it features a gentle alpha ready for commitment, a battered but not broken heroine, a connection that deepens as the story goes on, and suspense that culminates in an action packed conclusion However, this also had a heavy, serious first half that focuses on the hardships our heroine has faced, making it a little heartbreaking as well plenty of triggers with this one.The story follows Zara, a woman who has spent the last 15 years posing as a teenage boy to avoid unwanted attention from men She lives on the streets in Peru, with only the barest of necessities and a daily experience that s completely unlike what she would ve had back home in the States When she encounters Meat yes, this is a nickname, but that s what he goes by for the whole book so I m sticking to it , he s injured and barely able to function Though she s wary of all men, something about Meat makes Zara feel safe, and he trusts her to take care of him It s not long before the tables are turned and it s Zara who must trust in Meat to care for her as they slowly build from strangers to friends to lovers.Stoker s writing is as solid as ever, and fans of the series are likely to enjoy this book immensely Personally, I found the first half difficult to get into it is just so focused on the atrocities that Zara faced that it was pretty heavy Once the story moved into the second act, I found it much easier to enjoy Meat is such a tender, caring, and patient man that it was easy to root for him and Zara He s definitely got some alpha tendencies, but I didn t feel like they overpowered the story And the ending sets up the next book in a big way, giving readers a hint of what they re in store for I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving a review of this suspenseful romance.

    Wow Another winner in the Mountain Mercenaries series. Zara was kidnapped and abandoned in the barrios of Peru as a young child and has struggled to survive every day for fifteen years when she encounters Meat Meat is there, working with the Peruvians, when he is brutally attacked and left for dead Zara rescues him, then trusts him with her story.While all of this author s books tug on the heart strings, this one was especially poignant as it shines a light on the plight of children and the very poor in some countries Despite the horrific circumstances, Zara somehow manages to maintain a sense of right and wrong This is an engaging novel that had me hooked from the very first page and kept me flipping pages until the very end I couldn t put this one down and stayed up way too late reading it This one is a must read as if you enjoy the genre, you will love this book Put it at the top of your TBR list, or, better yet, pre order it so you don t have to wait a moment longer than necessary to read it The author is on my must read authors list.
